Cool 2010 Toronto International Boat Show Coverage

Direct Energy Center - Toronto, Ontario - January 14, 2010

Well, yesterday marked the date for our annual trip down to the Toronto International Boat Show.

We're enjoying a very welcomed mild spell here in Toronto, mild translating into temperatures a few degrees above celsius. But unlike most years at this time of January, the weather is at least hinting that the spring of 2010 isn't too far away.

We have close to a couple of hundred pictures that we've taken and the plan is to post a few every few days or so. Hopefully, we've taken enough to tide us over until the ice goes out!

I hope you enjoy our little 2010 TIBS pictorial and thanks as always to Yolie for snapping the shots.

-Chris

Here's a few shots of the front entrance area at the Direct Energy Center.

This complex, is actually comprised of a few buildings, some of which are linked together.

This particular buidling also contains the RICOH coliseum, where the Toronto Maple Leafs' AHL farm team the Toronto Marlies play.

Next door to this building and on the same grounds is BMO Field where Toronto FC of the MLS play.

There were less boats and booths out front the entrance this year. A few years back, the AOMC gang had a really nice booth outside the entrance with a display of some nice vintage outboards. Hopefully we'll catch up with them this summer at an event or two.

There was a nice Princecraft parked out in the entrance area, which teased us to what we would find inside. Ah spring, it can't come fast enough!

As always Chris this looks like it will be another interesting thread that you are about to display. Thanks.

Did you see the new Cobalt A25 With the swim step that lowers down?

I talked to one of our salesman that had seen this boat in the R&D area while at cobalt, And he said to build that boat it takes a extra long time to make it because of the way they need to build it in sections in order to get the lines on the sides of the boat to work or basically blend in together for using that new style swim step. The salesman said it was hard to see the molding lines in this photo from what he can remember seeing and what the cobalt team was talking about while he was at the factory for dealer meeting.

Hey BT,

I'm not sure if we got any shots of that model or not. Pretty cool feature though, first time I've seen or heard about it to be honest. So thanks for the tidbit.

We always missing something, no matter how much time we spend at the show - it's pretty big.

I'll have a look through our pics and see what we've got. I have to work them over a bit before they're ready to post.

-Chris

Here's a few shots of the St. Martin Powerboats display.

What's interesting about these guys, is that they build a Checkmate Playmate clone that they call the F-13. They also have added a couple of other models that are similar looking called a F11 and a F15.

Here are a few shots of the display.



Here is the F11, which is a 11' model - it had a max H.P. rating of 15.

Well, as usual....going to the Boat Show makes me feel two things.....I want summer and I want to go for a boat ride and waterskii.

Taking that many pictures and not having captured everything amazes me just how much work goes into these shows. It is neat to see the pictures through your eyes Chris as it did for me taking them.

Fun show and lots to look at....look forward to seeing more pictures on the site.

Chris,

Thanks for the posting of all the pics. This all good stuff. Keep them coming.

I looking forward to the Los Angeles show in February.

I'm hoping that Cobalt that Boat Tech posted pictures of is there. I would like to see that up close.
